Clay Print


At Radiant Heart we take the time and have developed the skills required to create an exceptional clay print.

Typically pet parents request a paw (claw, foot, etc.) print, but we are also able to take impressions of other body parts.  For example, bearded dragon parents frequently request tail and/or head profile impressions.

***Please note that for nose prints, we highly recommend our Nose Leather Casting option vs. a clay print impression.***

Your pet’s clay print should last a lifetime. That’s why we use a white polymer clay. Polymer clay allows for a detailed and highly tactile print that once baked is almost impossible to break.

Once we have a nicely shaped and detailed impression, we then add your pet’s name and create holes for a ribbon. The print is baked for approximately 30 minutes, cooled, and then sanded both by machine and hand.

After baking and sanding the clay print, we then wash the clay print with soap and water. We use a dental pick to remove any stubborn debris. We also look for any imperfections outside of the print that may require revision and re-baking.

By default we use a Parade Blue or Silver Gray 1/8″ ribbon. If you would like a different color ribbon, please describe the color in the NOTES section below. RBG or HTML numbers would be helpful. We’ll see what we can find. You could also select one of the default colors and replace the ribbon yourself.

Application of 4 coats of clear water-based urethane. UV protection, mold and mildew resistant, seals out water.
